SpaceX successfully completes Crew Dragon engine tests

SpaceX has successfully completed a round of Crew Dragon tests. The company previously attempted a similar set of static fire engine tests on April 20th, but admitted a few days later that the Crew Dragon capsule it used was destroyed. It blamed the explosion on a component that leaked liquid oxidizer into high-pressure helium tubes.

Excellent. Now stick some astronauts on it and send them to the space station so we can stop paying the Russians for Soyuz flights.
